Different kinds of fine art photography - By Rafal Maleszyk

Different kinds of fine art photography

Author: Rafal Maleszyk Fine Art Photos

What is fine art photography? This is hard to define, what is art? Can it be anything that has been created out of passion, or anything that is beautiful. Not all art is beautiful. This is very wide topic and here I will focus on what kind of fine art photography can we find. Obviously it is not important what is photographed but how it is done. We can see not just a black blurry photos called fine art but very sharp detailed photos of garbage, it seems to me that fine art can be created with anything. In the past famous master artist were able to create art from ugly , gloomy, dark topic today photographers can do it with subjects that can surprise.

In today digital world just creating something that is very real without the over saturation of color, brightness or contrast can be considered fine art. We can find photos of grass or common bushes called fine art only because it has been taken by famous and established artist. This fenomenon has deeper and more important message. Today 90% of the photographic work is over saturated, there is more contrast then in reality, the digital post manipulation even in the photographs that are considered not manipulated is more noticeable then in traditional analog. Art is always looking for new and original and appreciating unique and different, for that reason just creating body of work that shows the reality without minimal addition can be appreciated.

There are photographers that specialize in landscape photography, using newest equipment and producing work that has nothing to do with reality. Work is very bright and unnaturally contrasted with certain feel of digital. People like those kind of pictures, because this either speaks to their imagination or showing that perfect colors, perfect saturation and contrast is possible to do. Others critique this kind of work calling it boring and very common.

Of course there are black and white photography, this is the kind that has started it all. Black and white comes from the roots and is considered the most unique and most powerful by some. It has some unexplainable energy of showing the reality just in two colors. Even though all other colors are excluded this kind of picture can show the emotions, the beauty , surprise, calm down or shock.

Ed Meredith : Featured Artist

Sell Art Online

Ed Meredith is an extraordinarily talented artist and one I have the greatest pleasure of featuring his artwork. Ed actually has little to say for himself - which I understand as I think images speak very loudly for an artist.

Art Prints

I even call this words in image format - in other words I believe that artists communicate in a pictorial form on some level. This is only my opinion - there is no science to back it up.

Photography Prints

Exquisite photography.

Do you see an owl? I do :)

An intrigue unto itself.

I'd say to anyone - you need to go and look at this image above to fully appreciate the artwork and the meaning.

Marvellous sense of form and solidity.

I have a great love for Vintage imagery and the above is no exception.

Do I have a favourite?

It's hard - and I believe it is one I have already posted above - and I shall let you, my readers,  work out which it may be.

However, there's never enough love in this world - so here is some from Ed's magnificent portfolio.

Lehua Pekelo-Stearns : Featured Artistic Photographer

Art Prints

Lehua says, "Art does not reproduce what is visible; it makes things visible.' Paul Klee, artist.
I photograph each image to 'tell it's story' and to reflect upon it's unique and strong visual aura. Living in Hawaii an unique and strong visual aura is all around you. My inspiration is to share that with others thru my photography. I hope my photography, 'makes things visible', in a special gift for yourself or a gift for someone special."

Sal Marino Featured Artist And Author

Art Prints

Sal is a very unique artist, and he has quite a lot to say for himself. :) I shall let him do all the talking - he's kind of difficult to explain, but his images say everything.

Photography Prints

"Yes girls, I'm Dashingly Handsome, Single, A Love God on my Home Planet of Zimdar and I'll be signing autographs later, so please stand back while I get naked and ready for this...[Rimshot & Cymbal Crash!] ...Started doing these goofy doodles when I was in High School about a hundred and eighty seven years ago."

"Did lots of other stuff too! Music (was almost a Rock Star...film at 11!), Photography (was an assistant for Ralph Gibson, got to meet the Art Elite in NYC), was poor, found Capitalism, got rich, then poor, then rich again, got married, had a son, got divorced, got poor again and now...who cares?"

Art Prints

"So I started painting and sculpting again for FUN> Some years ago (c2001) someone asked me what I call this stuff...For lack of a better excuse [and at the insistence of some individuals who just love labels], I called it 'Funism'. Now, some years later I'm known as the 'Founder of the Funism Art Movement'. Go Figure? And that's not all!...Now all the 'trendy's' anti up big bucks for my stuff because they find it hillarious and simply must have a 'Marino' 'Funist' work in their collection. So you see, you too can be rich and famous, all you have to do is make something brilliant (Oh Brother, is this guy serious?) that people want and sell it for lots of Green".

"Or, you can simply do what everyone else does and tell me what to go do to myself...[Cymbal Crash!] But if you really want to know more about my life of debauchery, read my book, 'Guy Talk, Girl Talk', an amusingly filthy Funism Book which affords a humorous look at sexual yearnings, unfulfilled love, brushes with fame and the not so ordinary oddities of life."

Sheer romance????

Beauty comes from within; remember? :)

I cannot help but post a picture of the artist and author himself. If anything is a contrast, it's his image and his artwork, which in itself is quite brilliant.
I really did think Sal looked like one of his paintings - ah well, we can't have everything we want.
